Data

At the FCC, we are committed to unlocking our agencies data and putting open, machine readable data into the hands of citizen developers and the community. Let us know how we can improve FCC.gov/Data

How can FCC data be more useful to the public?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Baseball players cursing on television?

    How about we not allow a Boston Redsox player to use the F word on television. And how about the FCC not issue a statement dismissing it. Just because they just had a bombing in their city doesn't excuse it. Baseball is a family event. They should be respectful of folks who are offended by that kind of language.

      • demand that all 2015/2016 presidential debates be made available to ALL interested citizens via national broadcast channels!

        This is the first Presidential Election whose debates are not allowed to be seen by ALL of its citizens.

        Cable outlets are grossly discriminating against "cord-cutters" to boost their ratings and advertising revenues by prohibiting same-day viewing of the presidential candidates' participation in the scheduled 2015/2016 debates without an active cable subscription.

        All citizens should have the right to view the televised debates without being forced to pay for a cable subscription!

        Stop the debate sponsors from denying the freedom to view the 2015/2016 scheduled debates. It should never be a "pay to play" right of the voting public!

                      • require terrestrial broadband providers to give a minimum usage cap of 1 terabyte

                        Isps claim a family of 4 only uses about 250 gigabytesvof data per month. I disagree with this and think the minimum data cap they impose should be no less than 1 terabyte as most current caps allow for less than 1 hour of the Netflix use per day per person and that's not acceptable.

                        • Stop corrupt landlords from monitoring tenants email accounts

                          I had no idea I was signing a lease to a ***** house December 2010 owned by St Vincent De Paul-Father Joe Villages in San Diego. I also did not know they were involved in drug trafficking and monitored tenants email accounts via Cox Communications. Here is my nightmarish story. It all started Friday March 1,2013 two white males and a white female with a large dog entered Village Place aka New Jack City 32 17th Street San Diego,Ca 92101 around 6:30 p.m. First they went to the second floor to Johnny's a strange acting Black male. Then Willie Ray…

                          • Please require station identification logo can only be displayed for a few seconds after commercial.

                            Any logo is distracting from the programming. Any text scrolling that is non-relevant to the programing is distracting and infuriating. There is way too much unwanted, in your face, "forced advertising" in our society. It all needs to stop.

                                      • end caps and tethering restrictions on data service

                                        If I watch one tv show or ten shows, the cable companies still make money from me and their advert listings. The same should be true of my Internet service and my devices that deliver said data. How I access the data is my concern regardless of my desire to tether 10 gigs to my laptop or use this ten gigs on only my mobile phone Or a game console. This is an overreaching and ridiculous ploy by the digital carriers to double dip and charge twice for services already paid for in full.
